As soon as the calendar shifted from August to September, we have to admit there’s a little longing for our old lives… including that oh so familiar Pumpkin Spice Latte. But the reality is, we don’t need it, and once we found out what was in it, we decided to kiss it good-bye for good. In our quest to recreate our very ‘basic bitch’ Fall beverage of choice, we found loads of recipes for paleo pumpkin spice lattes filled with real ingredients that we don’t feel the least bit concerned about drinking.
So check out the recipes linked below, along with the helpful video from the ever amazing Danielle Walker of Against All Grain.
Not a coffee drinker? We’ve found that strongly brewed black tea creates a beautiful pumpkin spice tea latte.
Pro Tip – many of these recipes are well served by a touch of orange zest or some additional vanilla extract or (our favorite!) vanilla bean powder.
